A Quote by Kent Nerburn on weakness and lessons

"We are weak," Dan said. "We are weak for alcohol.  Just like white people are weak for owning things."  He turned to me.  "But those weaknesses are gifts, just like our strengths are gifts.  Weaknesses make us strong, because they make us stand up to ourselves."
